Due to the welfare schemes launched by the government, the naxals do not get people’s support. Senior Maoists use the poor tribal youths only for their own benefit. Married dalam members cannot live an independent married life. Due to the aggressive anti-Naxal operations of the Gadchiroli Police, the living in the forest become dangerous that is why Anil left the dalam, told the SP.

Bhamragad in Gadchiroli district.
Naxalite are not paid for any work. Women Naxalite not getting a chance to go to a senior position. Women being used only for carrying heavy burden and also not get chance to participate in important operations. Senior Maoists force to women Naxalite to marry. During the encounter, male Naxalites are able to run away, but women are killed, are some of the reasons for her surrender, told the SP.
The Government has announced a reward of rupees 04 lakhs on Anil’s head and a reward of rupees 02 lakhs on Roshani’s head.

All necessary assistance will be provided to those who are willing to surrender and join the mainstream of the society. He appealed the active naxalites to renounce the path of the violence and adopt the path of peace.
